  1. The upper one.......there’s scope for a nice (realistic) transitional curve. Griff
  2. Just a thought.... but could the entrance curve be eased if the platforms were moved towards the rear of the board? The curve would be eased a little more if the platforms were arranged at an angle? There seams to be enough space for everything else and the angle would perhaps improve the overall aesthetic? Griff Edit.... As per Flying Pig’s suggestion.
  3. I noticed today that B&Q offer the same. Griff
  4. I don’t believe they have (Bachmann certainly haven’t) I’m aware of grey and ‘Mainline’ blue from Hornby.... were there any others? Griff
  5. BR certainly survived into the 2000’s. The last chairman being Alastair Morton https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alastair_Morton Griff
  6. What’s wrong with that.... Heathrow plane port...... Southampton ship park and and Victoria bus harbour all have a ring to them
  7. A train station is a place where you can catch trains. There are railway stations but since Beeching (and before) many of them no longer have trains. Recently passengers who endure ‘Southern’ have discovered the difference between a train station and a railway station
  8. I’ve just discovered that Newhaven is in the care of the Wirral finescale modellers group and the layout is being shown, in a slightly modified form, at Railex (Aylesbury) on the 25th and 26th of May 2019. Griff
  9. Handbrake? I think it was just a valve. Griff
  10. I think that’s the crux of the matter. The service they supply is the products they offer us for sale.... note offer us. I’m sure there is very little financial gain. As far as I’m concerned, providing no one is being ripped off, they can run their company pretty much how they like. if you want customer service... then go to McDonald’s..... have a nice day (now that’s sarcasm ) Griff
  11. I’m not going to apologise for him.... because I don’t feel he needs to but if you feel you can offer better... Griff
  12. It’s a long time since I’ve seen a copy but is it the same as the old GLC plans book? ... just curious. Griff
  13. In much the same way I’ve been rereading his various threads. The 4 CIG topic in particular demonstrated Colin’s unwillingness to compromise on prototype fidelity and it’s a ‘must read’ for anyone who has designs on EMU or coach scratch building using plastic sheet. I can only imagine how his next layout (which would probably have been built to P4 standards) would have looked like. Griff
  14. I’ve just spent the last couple of hours rereading the thread marvelling at Colin’s achievements. Colin was a fine modeller, particularly in the medium of styrene sheet, and Newhaven stands as a tribute to his work. RIP Colin Parks Griff
